I appears the liberals can’t simply won’t say what the founders said even when quoting them.
Just seven days after he sparked controversy by omitting the word “Creator” when he closely paraphrased the passage from the Declaration of Independence that says all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights,” President Barack Obama again omitted the Creator when speaking about the “inalienable rights” that “everybody is endowed with.”
This time the president was speaking at a Sept. 22 fundraiser for the
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, and his reference to “inalienable rights” was not as close a paraphrasing of the
Declaration as it had been the week before.
Vice President Biden to Democratic Base: 'Stop Whining'
At a fundraiser in Manchester, NH, today, Vice President Biden urged
Democrats to "remind our base constituency to stop whining and get out there and look at the alternatives. This President has done an incredible job. He’s kept
The remarks, made to roughly 200 top Democratic activists and
donors, recall comments President Obama made last week to “griping and
groaning Democrats…Folks: wake up. This is not some academic exercise. As Joe
Biden put it, Don’t compare us to the Almighty, compare us to the
You know you are in trouble when you talk to your supporters like this.
Lessons from History for the Insurgency
Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it. Here’s an interesting look at polical insurgencies in American History and asks the question what will happen with the TEA Party movement?
Mass political movements have come along several times in American
history. Some have transformed the country, and others have fizzled
The movement that elected Andrew Jackson, against the vicious
opposition of the existing establishment, swept through all levels of American
government, rewriting state constitutions and extending the franchise to all
adult males. Jacksonian democracy caused a permanent and irreversible change in American life.
The Populist movement looked like it would have a similar
impact. Led by the charismatic outsider William Jennings Bryan, this
movement held gigantic rallies and seemed like a revolution in the making. It
provoked fear and a hostile response from the establishment of its day, in both
political parties. Yet the Populists ultimately failed to make a significant
impact on national policy, and were absorbed into the Democratic
Today’s Insurgency could go either way. Success is not inevitable.
Democratic powerhouse UPDATED!
Yes, the Democrats have their special interest groups too. Only theirs want to dedevelop the United States.
Officials of a dozen top Big Green environmental groups contributed
more than $14.5 million to congressional and presidential candidates in 2008 and
through the second quarter of 2010 with 96 percent of the total going to
Democrats, according to an Examiner analysis of federal campaign
The data was compiled from the Federal Election Commission
and included only donations by individuals who listed one of the 12 groups as
their employer or listed themselves as an officer or director of one or more of
the groups. This analysis does not include contributions by individuals who did
not list an employer.
Rep. Alan Grayson's 'Taliban' ad backfires
Rep. Alan Grayson twisting and quoting someone out of context so the meaning is the exact opposite of what he was saying? More news that really isn’t news.
Rep. Alan Grayson's attempt to equate his Republican challenger with
the Taliban is having a big impact — just not the one Grayson may have hoped.
In an ad, Grayson's campaign calls Republican Daniel Webster a
"religious fanatic" — a charge it supports with video in which Webster seems to
encourage wives to "submit" to their husbands.
But FactCheck.org says the narrative crafted by the Florida Democrat's campaign distorts what Webster was actually saying.
"Grayson has lowered the bar even further. He's using edited video
to make his rival appear to be saying the opposite of what he really
said," the nonpartisan site, sponsored by the Annenberg Public Policy
Center, wrote on its blog Monday.
"Grayson manipulates a video clip to make it appear Webster was
commanding wives to submit to their husbands, quoting a passage in the Bible.
Four times, the ad shows Webster saying wives should submit to their husbands,"
the site points out. "In fact, Webster was cautioning husbands to avoid taking
that passage as their own. The unedited quote is: 'Don't pick the ones [Bible
verses] that say, 'She should submit to me.'"
Grayson was also reprimanded by the Orlando Sentinel, which posted
a story Monday headlined "Grayson's 'Taliban Dan' Ad Takes Webster's Words Out of Context, Twists Meaning."
"By twisting Webster's words, Grayson risks eroding some of the support he may have won from independent voters," the paper concluded.
Obama: Democratic voter apathy 'inexcusable'
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be "inexcusable" and "irresponsible" for unenthusiastic Democratic voters
to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a
squandered agenda for years.
